Gnumeric 0.69 aka 'diaper duty' is now available.

This is primarily a bug fix release. Although few new features have been added, including a Psion importer. Several of the core features added in recent releases have been completed. Frozen panes and outline mode are now fully functional, with full XL import/export. Andreas has been very helpful in reviewing some of the statistical code. Most of the remaining elements in this release are characterisable as behaviour polishing. It should be very stable as we run up to 1.0. As mentioned the feature freeze date of July has obviously slipped and is now targeted at August. Work on graphs starting with XL import is progressing and should be in the next release.
